VDA 6.2 – Qualification for 1st / 2nd / 3rd Party Auditor (Training)

The VDA 6.2 certification standard was first published by the VDA in 1997. In 2017 it was updated on the basis of the new ISO 9001:2015. It comprises requirements for automotive organisations that provide services in the product life cycle and thus influence the quality of products. Thus, service providers also have the opportunity to achieve certification within the framework of an automotive standard. In particular, motor trade organisations as well as many transportation and logistics organisations can now avail themselves of this option to enhance their customer focus on a long-term basis. But equally, internal service providers, e. g., design and development, logistics, and purchasing, in VDA 6.2 have a valuable instrument at their command for continuous improvement.
